Taken from a recent Associated Press article about generating power through wind:

“If we could just find a way to make them [wind farms] invisible,” Gray said, “we’d have something everybody could get behind.”

Seriously? I mean, seriously? Like, you’re ok with smokestacks, oil refineries or Newark? I mean, I am clearly in support of alternative energy, but that’s not even the issue here. The issue is that this guy thinks we should keep relying on instable and arguably corrupt foreign sources of energy because wind farms are not visually attractive? Somebody take this guy to Texas. Flash poll: do you find wind turbines unseemly? [Note: I know the picture above probably has little to do with energy, but you do get the point, right?]
